CAR EVENTS

CRUISE NIGHTS, CARS & COFFEES (& Other Recurring Car Gatherings)

*We are now in process of building up our 2022 event listings... The 2022s are now back to being highlighted in BLUE... As always, we welcome you to please send us your CT Shoreline-area old car event listings!

This Calendar is originated and periodically updated by the Shoreline Antique Auto Connection, a not-for-profit enterprise run for antique auto enthusiasts, by antique auto enthusiasts. As the information presented here is gleaned from a WIDE variety of sources, there is no way we can vouch for the truth or accuracy of anything, and we STRONGLY suggest you get in touch with the applicable event contacts listed, to make sure the event is indeed going to be held (especially before you make a long trip to attend!). Thank you. SAAC, P.O. Box 3353, Stony Creek, CT 06405, e-mail CommonGear@aol.com, web site http://www.shorelineantiqueautoconnection.com/ . Please send your CT Shoreline-area event listings for inclusion here (non-marque-specific events preferred).

WHY DO WE DO THIS? - We maintain this Calendar as a service to our fellow local-area antique auto enthusiasts! It's not perfect, but we always work very hard at it, and try to verify as much as possible everything that we publish. And we love to share it! We are not professionals at this--only enthusiasts who enjoy the old car hobby. What would really make us happy, however, is that those who may like to copy and paste our exhaustively researched (always with sources credited), written-out & detailed listings for their own web site use, to please occasionally give us a little bit of a shout-out! Thanks for your understanding and support! See you out there at the shows & cruises!

"WHERE ELSE ARE GOOD PLACES TO LOOK FOR UPCOMING CAR EVENT LISTINGS FOR THIS AREA?" - Frankly, at this stage of the game (mid-June 2020), the only calendar I really trust is THIS ONE. Other calendars that I look at regularly appear to be suffering from "lack of interest" by their editors/maintainers--and I can't say I blame them, since so much of the calendar updating I seem do these days is to revise events into cancelled events--it's depressing. For some reasonably reliable places to go look for events in Connecticut in general (we make no excuses for our desire to stay CT Shoreline-focused on this page), we first recommend The Connecticut Council of Car Clubs Events Calendar (whose editor John B. is extremely conscientious about keeping it accurate and updated; may we also suggest joining their Facebook group page for lots of event updates as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/connecticutcouncilofcarclubs/), and then also Hemmings and also OldRide.com ... Beyond those, good luck... SUGGESTION: Contact the club or organization directly to see if their event is actually going to happen--relying solely on someone's haphazardly-maintained compendium of events (and I'm not saying I'm infallible--I only do this as a hobby after all) can often get you into trouble... Happy event hunting!

NOVEMBER 22, 2022 (Tuesday) – FEBRUARY 19, 2023 (Sunday), Essex – 29th Annual Holiday Train Show at the Connecticut River Museum… Quoting from the dedicated event page we found at the CT River Museum’s web site (https://ctrivermuseum.org/events/29th-annual-holiday-train-show/): “…29th Annual Holiday Train Show, November 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - February 19, 2023 @ 5:00 pm… ‘…Trains run daily Tuesday through Sunday, Tuesday, November 22, 2022 – Sunday, February 19, 2023… The family friendly Holiday Train Show exhibit is back at the Connecticut River Museum for its 29th year of fun for all ages.

NOVEMBER 26, 2022, Saturday, Branford – Town of Branford and Branford Parks & Recreation Present: "2022 Annual Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting"… Parade steps off from the High School at 6:30pm; participants must be in place at the High School no later than 5:30pm… webmaster’s note – This is a relatively short parade, from the Branford High School (located at 185 East Main Street, Branford, CT 06405), up to the Town Green, total distance of approximately 0.9 miles. As you can guess, with a parade stepping off at 6:30pm, it all happens after sundown, so make sure you are comfortable with driving your old car at night, and also, it has been our experience that folks have sometimes rigged holiday lights on their car for the parade, and I think the organizers encourage that and/or any other sort of holiday decorations to your car… One additional important note (based on having personally driven my old cars in these parades for several years), especially for those driving an old car with a manual transmission: There is a bit of a hill on the last quarter mile or so leading up to the Town Green, so make sure you are competent & comfortable with stopping & starting on an uphill with your old car!... more webmaster’s notes - A link to a marked-up copy of the 2022 Branford Christmas Parade Sign-up Form, that I modified for "independent" (not affiliated with any particular group) antique automobile participation, follows below. Traditionally the Branford Parks & Recreation Department has had the independent antique autos muster at the front parking area of Branford High School. Please take special note of two things: #1: The deadline for getting your registration form in to Parks & Rec is November 18th, 2022, and #2: You need to be in place at the High School no later than 5:30pm, for the parade that steps off at 6:30pm. The date of the parade is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which is 11/26/2022, and according to what I’ve read on Branford Parks & Rec info pages, if it’s raining on Saturday the 26th, all they will do on Sunday the 27th is the tree lighting (in other words, no make-up parade if it happens to have been raining on the Saturday the 26th). So, anyway, here’s THE LINK TO THE MARKED-UP FORM (or you could also go online and print out/mark up your own as you wish): http://www.shorelineantiqueautoconnection.com/26November2022BranfordHolidayParadeSignUpForm-AntiqueAutoCustomized-CopyToUploadToSAACServer.jpg ... Additional important info - The ORIGINAL (2-page) Branford Parks & Rec Department 2022 Holiday Parade Flyer (page 1), with downloadable Registration Form (page 2) is found online at:https://branfordct.myrec.com/forms/6039_press_release_2022_f.pdf – and the main “Announcements” page, which is where the above links came from, at the Branford Parks & Rec web site is: https://branfordct.myrec.com/info/default.aspx ... And there you have it!... (this event was added to this calendar as of 10/21/2022)

NOVEMBER 26, 2022, Saturday, Westport (CONNECTICUT; starting point) to North Salem (NEW YORK; lunch destination) – “…Small Car Company .Org Presents: ‘Post Tryptophan Rally,’…” starting from Compo Beach in Westport, estimated duration 9am to 1pm… Quoting from the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/1323894071755488): “…Post Tryptophan Rally, Saturday, November 26… Meet 10:00 am: Compo Beach, Westport, CT 06880, South Beach Parking Lot (no town sticker required)… Depart 10:30 am: Back Road Cruise to North Salem, NY… Lunch Noon-ish: Hayfields Market, 1 Bloomer Rd., North Salem, NY 10560… The good folks at Hayfields have planned a family style chili bar with all the trimmings, cornbread, and grilled cheese sammies, all served up just for us in their greenhouse. $30 per head… This is a rain or shine event, so feel free to join in your next favorite car—your choice!...

NOVEMBER 27, 2022, Sunday, Orange – “…'Toys For Tots’ - The Third Annual Event at Goodies of Orange, 11am to 2pm, at Goodies of Orange, 111 Boston Post Road, Orange, CT …”... Quoting from George Crespo's (https://www.facebook.com/george.crespo.94) Facebook post of 11/21/2022 (that included an electronic flyer), that Melissa from Fritz's Car Cruise (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1756678554598185/) shared to their page the same day: "...Goodies Orange Toys For Tots Cruise, November 27th, with Santa and the Cruisin' East Car Club!..."...

DECEMBER 10, 2022, Saturday, Branford – “…Coppola Customs Presents ‘The 4th Annual Christmas Event: Toys For Tots & Cars & Coffee,’ Saturday, December 10th, 11:00am to 5:00pm, at Coppola Customs, 11 Business Park Drive, Branford, CT 06405… ‘You don’t want to miss this!’… Exotic cars, trucks, hot coffee, food trucks, lots of great raffles, music, great cause, Christmas Spirit!... ‘Through the gift of a new toy, help bring the JOY of Christmas to many children in need! Gifts for children of all ages, and monetary donations are greatly appreciated… Please stop by and consider bringing a new unwrapped gift for our donation box!... Enjoy hot beverages, friends, vehicles of all kinds, food off the food truck, and lots of prizes!... The last 3 years we had an amazing turnout—please help us get there again this year!...

Tell your friends! See you there!...”… webmaster’s note – I’ve been to I think two out of the three of these events that Coppola Customs has held so far—the first one was over at Willoughby’s, which is in the industrial complex adjacent to The Chowder Pot (corner of East Main and School Ground Road), and then one more, I think the year after that, at the fantastic Coppola Customs headquarters at 11 Business Park Drive (in the beautiful industrial campus that’s right off of I-95, Exit 56, Leetes Island Road—almost right across the street from the well known Thimble Islands Brewery). The Coppola Customs folks, including their friends at Willoughby’s, do a wonderful job with these events—there is a true feeling of Christmas Spirit! And you’ll feel even better when you drop your new, unwrapped toy into the donation box (and/or your monetary donation to the cause)… More info - I was alerted to this event’s 2022 version just a couple of days ago, thanks to Abby Rose’s (https://www.facebook.com/groups/372713469572291/user/734830015) post to the “Shoreline Antique Auto Enthusiasts – Connecticut” Facebook group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/372713469572291); Abby wrote: “…Join us for our 4th Annual Toys For Tots – Cars & Coffee Christmas Event!

The form is to be filled-out with what kind of space you’re ordering, your name, address, phone, etc., and also instructions on how to make your checks payable, and where to mail it & your payment to. Don’t forget that I would be most happy to send you a Xerox copy of the entire flyer (which includes the vending spaces request form at the bottom), in return for your stamped, SASE (info on where to send it above—Steve at SAAC). I will also attempt to make a computer scan of the entire flyer, that I could then e-mail to you—I know sometimes e-mail is easier than hassling with stamps & envelopes—so if you’d like an electronic copy of the entire form, please also contact me at CommonGear@aol.com , and make sure to indicate what it is you’re asking for—I will do my best to help you out!...

CRUISE NIGHTS, CARS & COFFEES (& Other Recurring Car Gatherings) 

IMPORTANT: Since the world of Cruise Night listings seems to be especially filled with old, out-of-date information--which has, on occasion, led to frustrating drives to non-existent cruises (we speak from direct personal experience!)--we've decided to do our best to only list confirmed listings (though we still urge you to call ahead before making any long trips, since we cannot guarantee anything), which we'll clearly highlight with a noticeable color--we have been alternating red and fuchsia in recent years to highlight the most recent years' listings. *12/15/2021 UPDATE - Will use BLUE for the new 2022 listings!!... Anyway, now that it's the New Year, if you have any confirmed 2022 cruise and/or recurring-type event listings, please send us yours--especially those Shoreline-oriented, for inclusion here--Thanks!...

Quoting from the event flyer posted on the Hemmings dedicated info page (https://www.hemmings.com/events/detail?listing_id=58473) where this event was found (direct flyer link: https://assets.hemmings.com/uimage/77519114-0-0.jpg?rev=1): “…The popular Neshantic Station Flea Market is joined in 2021 by the new Neshantic Station Car Show!

To find the location via GPS, enter “111 Elm Street, Branchburg, NJ”…”… webmaster’s note – Why a car show in New Jersey on the SAAC Calendar? Reason #1 is that it’s a nice early-season event (and we love the early season events), and Reason #2 is that it seems a lot of events more local to us are either not being planned yet (obviously due to COVID concerns), or are being planned and cancelled already (which is exceptionally depressing, and for the same reason), and Reason #3 is that it just plain sounds like fun, and if I have a free Saturday, I’ll definitely consider a drive out there to check it out—if not as a participant, at least as a spectator! New Jersey is a beautiful state to visit!… (this cruise/recurring event was added to this calendar as of 2/25/2021)
